I have put together a special clip of outtakes from my video with Briella. Of course there are the usual bits in between takes, with Briella laughing or funny moments as I give her directions. But in two extended cases, I have extra content that I did not go on to use in the finished video.
The first happens after Briella’s character hangs up the phone ending her initial conversation. I had tried a sequence that would require her get up from the desk and further contemplate leaving the building totally naked. This would have her walk toward the camera before fading out. In reviewing the material, I was concerned with the growing reflection in the glass window, which I even asked her character to reference. In addition, the corner of the room where we set up the desk was just too claustrophobic and difficult to maneuver around to capture the angle I wanted. And then the fact that part one was already pushing over 13 minutes of running time, there was no need to belabor the scene further. I actually quite like the way it ends now, with Briella’s expression, as she says goodbye and puts down the telephone receiver.
Additionally, the last 3 minutes or so of this clip was my original attempt to build a better wrap up to the video. As I mentioned previously, I had wanted to close with an outdoor running across the parking lot segment, but those plans were derailed. So back in the room, I hastily thought of having her realize after the fact that her clothes were missing. While I did keep that revelation as a punctuated finale, there were a number of issues with drawing out this scene. First, her clothes were scattered all over the place, coming into view in too many shots. (These are things you don’t always notice in the heat of recording.) And again, the oncoming evening was making the reflection in the glass window more glaring, capturing the bed in the room. Hardly appropriate for an illusory office setting. At one point, I did close the blinds, but it wouldn’t matter because it still created incongruous images when one angle had them open and then closed the next time.
I also toyed with the idea of Briella picking up the laptop and using it as cover, to add in a bit of hidden nudity. But for all the reasons I mentioned above, it was just not worth keeping this scene in the final production. In hindsight, I feel it was wise to just end the story where I did. These extended bits of Briella nude are preserved in this outtakes clip, so we can enjoy separate from the video’s overall coherence.
Another point to mention, Peanuth O’toole had provided me with some bird song effects and a dog barking, that I slipped into some of the outdoor scenes in the full production. I liked mixing his synthesized birds with the real chirps and tweets that occur naturally. And so I used this to open the outtakes, and then close out with his “Corporate Jungle” punk rock track.
The clip runs about 9 minutes, and can be downloaded at the link below.
A couple of quick updates I wanted to share. Looking back at last month’s statistics, May 2015 continued the trend and set a new record for site visits at 24,529.
This was helped by the announcement of my next video project with Briella, and also the new single day record that was set when I posted a preview clip from Troublemaker.
In other news, Danielle contacted me last night, and she wants to shoot. I have decided that now is as good a time as there will ever be to bring her sister on board. And besides, I am overdue for a two-girl production. So we are cooking up something for the middle of July. An exact date has not been finalized, but looks like I will have access to a location near the both of them. There is a script I am planning to work from, which might very well feature some good old fashioned sister rivalry.
In this video, Briella Jaden returns to play a receptionist working at NMP Industries. It is the end of the day and the office is quiet, when she receives a telephone call from one of her friends. Innocent chatting is soon followed by suggestions that Briella try something daring and take off her clothes. The young woman is shocked, yet slowly and reluctantly agrees to some fun, at the constant prompting on the other end of the phone. The final request from her friend is that Briella leave the building completely nude.
Because of the season and time of the day we shot this video, I wanted to take advantage of the remaining daylight. So the extended outdoor scenes were actually done first. And then we went back to the room with the desk where Briella changed into her office wardrobe to shoot the first half of this production.
Again, I was impressed with her handling of the premise as she carried the one-sided conversation on the phone. She plays a fun girl who is nevertheless trying to remain decent despite the risky suggestions from her friend. The result is that her undressing is slow and drawn out, actually a wonderful strip tease. But it is the context of the story that makes it even more exciting.
Outside, there was a nature preserve with trails located at the back of a sprawling office complex. Given the hour and day of the week, I figured we would not find too much trouble. However, in the middle of shooting, some dude walked onto the path, which I caught on camera. Briella had the presence of mind to scamper into some bushes behind a tree, once she realized what happened. The guy was good about it and thankfully this did not interrupt our plans. In fact, I was able to incorporate the incident into the way events played out for her character.
I wish to point out that some stretches seem to linger on Briella simply doing a slow, graceful walk down the wooded trail. This girl just oozes feminine sexuality and beauty. I cannot help but enjoy watching her form in motion. It also speaks to the type of character she plays. Yes she is embarrassed about her situation, but she grows ever aware that being outside like this is a thrill, always straddling between fear and excitement.
On the opposite side of the preserve, we ran into another group as we were shooting. Unfortunately this was not as pleasant an experience. I captured a split second of Briella’s reaction before cutting the camera. We then had to pack up and head back to the other location. I had more than enough outdoor material, the only problem was, I initially was planning to finish by asking Briella to run across the parking lot toward the office building. That was not possible now.
Instead, upon returning to the room, I stitched together an ending that is a little abrupt. But overall, I’m happy with the quality of content we were able to achieve. I was able to get a lot out of Briella, which is amazing since we have not worked together in two and a half years. There are scenes I deleted or did not use, only due to the abundance of material. These will be featured in the outtakes video.
The music featured in the production was composed by Penauth O’Toole. He provides a track called “Corporate Jungle” that has a punk rock sound as well playing off the theme from a television series. I think it works, as Briella spends a good deal of time in her birthday suit.
The full production comes in over a hefty 25 minutes and is available in 2 parts at my clips4sale store.
I just finished a video shoot with the returning Briella Jaden. The highlight should be this is the first chance I have had any kind of extended time outdoors with her. Although we did have a couple of run-ins out on the trails, but hey, that only makes this exciting.
What I enjoy about this young lady, is that she is fun and engaging, and always trying to improve. We have not worked together since the end of 2012, but she remembered that the theme of these videos contains an element of embarrassment. Of course Briella also adds her own natural sexy style, which makes for an interesting contrast in following her character.
It’s kind of late, so I will share these still photos for now. I’ll start editing the video over the weekend, and should have an update about progress soon.
